If he signed into an ICloud account with it, go to www.iCloud.com.

If you backed it up to his iTunes on a computer, then try to restore it.

If neither, no es bueno.

I only helped somebody migrate, Iphone 5 to 6

iCloud worked like a charm

If no iCloud backup, then tough luck, yah !!

Hello,

If he did not have iCloud, i think it is very difficile. But don't worry. Your father can try to use a software to help recover deleted data. And the software is more convenient to use to use for him. :D :D

To recover contacts from iPhone:

+++If you haven't backed your iPhone up

then perform any data recovery with data recovery software, this [###sanitized by Moderator###] tool is recommended!

+++If you have an iTunes backup

then follow these tips

launch iTunes (Do not let iTunes sync with your phone automatically!)
Follow this path -
Summary > Backups > Backup Now
Once the backup is created, follow this path -
Summary > Backups > This computer > Restore from Backup...
Alternatively, you could right-click on the phone icon in iTunes, and select Restore Backup ...

+++What about backup on iCloud

then these steps will help you restore data from iCloud backup

- Erase your iPhone.
- Select the "Restore from iCloud Backup" option.
- Allow the content to download onto your iPhone.

I hope it helps :D

I am locking this thread as it was clearly created for the spammers to follow.
